Hi, really interested in your diary comic, looks great and right up my street. Also interested in any zine events nearby as Im based in the North of Yorkshire. Could do a swop if you like?

I saw your announcement in the Minicomix group and while I don't generally have much interest in diary comics, yours sounds & looks interesting to me! If you don't mind sending to the US, my address is: Colin Tedford, PO Box 645, Winchester, NH, USA. I'd be happy to send a copy of my latest back or can chip in for postage or whatever.
